    ? and if so how well would it run. Not for a main computer but just if I was traveling and need to do some work on it?

    I run Final Cut Express 3.5 in a 2GHz MB Core Duo, and it runs fairly well. Not spectacular, but good enough.

    Final Cut Pro 6 works, it is almost the same as Final Cut Express.

    Now, the Final Cut Studio 2 is not going to work in a MB.

    FCS2 WILL WORK on a macbook! I'm running it on my 2.2ghz 4gb blackbook. I only use three programs out of the suite; Final Cut Pro, Livetype, and DVD Studio Pro. My macbook runs all three of these like a champ, the only thing I notice is that it makes the fan spin up all the way. From what I've heard, Motion and Color will also run on the macbook, but the lack of a dedicated graphics card makes them nearly impossible to actually use. Those are the only two apps that really require the dedicated graphics, everything else can be run fine by the macbook's integrated graphics.

    In front of my MacBook Pro
    Correct, FCS2 will run on a MacBook, but Motion will be unusable due to integrated graphics card. Trust me, FCS2 will even run on my PowerBook (but I had to trick it to install it).
